Crossover iMac mod

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone. Just wanted to post some pics of a mod I finished (mostly, still needs some tweaks regarding the mounting system) today. What I did is take the panel from a perfect pixel Crossover 27Q along with an Overlord PCB set and house them inside the body of an iMac. I also mounted the OSD at the bottom and wired it up so the iMac power button worked as well. I took my inspiration from this: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/286085-apple-cinema-display-mod/ except I used an iMac since he had a depth issue. In advance, I apologize for the lack of detailed pictures. I'll give brief explanations of what's going on in each of them. Without further ado:




^ Housing stripped, PCB mounted using adhesive 4mm pcb mounts, tcon board already changed



^ DVI cable routed. I know you guys can't see it, but it was also around this time that I dremeled out the space for the OSD board at the bottom.



^ You can faintly see the holes drilled for the OSD in this one.



^ Cables done, ready for panel mounting!



^ Finished product! Had to drill screws in the side and mount the panel through the wall of the iMac since I didn't have proprietary apple display mount rails. I'll adjust it till I get it centered enough to mount glass from here.

Anyways, just wanted to show off. Post in this thread if you guys have any questions about how it was done.
